The hospitality, friendliness, and kindness that you find here were a big draw,” says Michelle Seal, who moved to Dataw Island with her husband, Brian, this past year. “We really wanted to be in a small town, near the water, but without too much traffic. The minute we drove over the causeway, it immediately felt like home. Then we met a few residents and we were sold.”
The ease of meeting new friends and feeling at home goes a long way to explaining why members love this fun-loving community. Member-coordinated monthly dinner clubs, running the gamut from oyster roasts to happy hours, and social clubs that suit every passion, are just the start of staying connected with friends and neighbors. Though the club offers a full complement of amenities—two championship golf courses, eight Har-Tru tennis courts, bocce and croquet lawns, resort-style pool complex, indoor pool, and a fully appointed fitness center—members know how to make them both competitive and fun.
At this 870-acre hideaway along the marshes of the Intracoastal Waterway, the Atlantic Ocean is a scenic 15-minute drive or 30-minute boat ride away. Dataw’s full-service marina, the perfect starting point for coastal adventures, was recently rebuilt and is ready to use and enjoy. For onshore adventures, historic Beaufort, with independent restaurants and shops and the cultural offerings of the University of South Carolina Performing Arts Center, is within easy reach.
There are already 890 homes on 1,050 sites, meaning there’s still plenty of room to build plus a healthy resale market. Lots range from under half an acre to almost two acres, with homes from the $200,000s to $1.5 million. To truly appreciate Dataw Island’s neighborly atmosphere, their Experience Dataw package is a must.
